Overcharged with Dead

Overcharged with Dead was inspired by a QI fact and a Jude Higgins online workshop prompt. I wrote the words 'Winchester Geese' on my phone during an episode of QI and did some research into the Southward sex workers named after the Bishop of Winchester who gave out prostitution licensees to work in this area of London. 

When Jude asked us to look out on the solstice morning and write about it, I wondered what lockdown would be like for a sex worker during the pandemic. 

I entered it for the 'Home' themed flash fiction prompt in Mslexia and I was delighted that Meg Pokrass chose it for the Exploring Our Animal Natures Issue 87.
